All Class Information
Student Work Showcase & Class Tour:
The video below was put together by Jaidyn Crane and Alyssa Goforth and we use it constantly as part of our middle school recruiting. It shows a great tour of the Arts AV lab for those of you that have never been into our classroom.
Individual Class Information
YEARBOOK: It's that super busy time of year that page deadline after page deadline are coming in rapid succession. You should see the first deadline grade in Powerschool at this time and will keep seeing more and more come. You can see your individual students page requirements and the upcoming deadlines on the spreadsheet linked here.
VIDEO: We will spend this week finalizing loose ends on the iDIDA video edits as well as reviewing the iDIDA contest videos. Coming up students will be creating a new recruiting video for the Health Occupations cluster. They will have lots of creative freedom but something similar to the video posted at the top of this blog would be a good starting point.
GRAPHIC DESIGN: The first part of the week will be dedicated to Photoshop panel tutorials (all on Canvas and done in class). The second part of the week brings our C.A.R.P. lecture which has a lot of really important information that will drive creation for the rest of the week. There are lots of resources for this on Canvas that you can follow up with your student on.
PHOTOGRAPHY: We have wrapped up the Day in the Life unit. It would be a fun idea for you to ask your student to see their photo journal of their day. If nothing else would give you an idea of what they are doing with their time. Our next assignment involves you and your family. We will be shooting "Environmental Portraits" which means they will want to shoot a posed portrait of important people in their life (including you). So, don't be surprised if they ask for your assistance in the coming weeks posing in a common area that you might work (Kitchen, Den, Garage, etc.)
BROADCAST: All students have been assigned a story for their news package. They will start filming interviews and collecting footage for their story next week but that means this week they need to really be thinking through their questions and formulating a plan for putting this video together. On Friday Aaron Wall from Channel 13 will be coming as a guest speaker for the class.
